38 weeks and counting!

I am 38 weeks and COUNTING each moment that passes! I have been early with all 3 of my babies and really that has set me up for nothing but bitterness if I don't go into labour soon!
As you can see I am getting much more round (understatement) but at least baby Felix has dropped. I say that as if it's a good thing.... but really it means that his head is just lodge nice and low for added discomfort until he decided to come. I mean I'm not trying to complain, but some how the last days of counting down brings it out so naturally in me!
I am sporting this super cute tee my Mom had made for me, it says " I due, in June" A little apple obsessed fun!
So to pass the time I have been sewing up a storm! I will have pics to come! I have been finishing off curtains around my house that were long over due! Seger's cowboy room, my master room, and I am hoping to start the kitchen nook ones this afternoon! I'm in nesting mode and trying to tie up all the loose ends. This has also led to a very strict bed making schedule for some reason. I know the kids are just going to nap in their beds in a matter of 3 hours, but I just want it all neat, all the time! (Like this is a surprise to anyone that knows me)
So send happy dilating wishes my way, and hopefully I get to have this baby soon! My water breaks on the start of labour everytime, so I hope that I have the same luck and happen to be at home. Different scenarios of being in a store or at church have been running through my head. I have this great desire to stalk the van with towels just in case!
So this is as bad as it gets folks..... I hope I won't be posting pics at 39 or even worse 40 wks+

I think you look beautiful. Nothing like pregnancy! I know you must be uncomfortable, and if your other babies came at 38 weeks, Im sure it won't be long...my sweet darlings were both delivered at 34 weeks and then spent a week in NICU...be grateful for your extra, uncomfortable weeks!! And look how productive you have been in these last few weeks! Blessings to you and your fmaily. ~~~Jenny

I hope your last days pass quickly so you can welcome the new little one into your family!

Btw...I love the tee you are wearing! Would you mind sharing where your mom got it? My sis is expecting and I would love to give her one!

Good luck!
My fear was that my water would break at work the second time around. It would have, but I forgot my laptop at home so I went home at lunch to work there for the afternoon. I was on a conference call and stood up, then whoosh! My water broke both times too.

Dang it Liz!! I've been unable to get to the blog world for the last few weeks and totally missed the give-a-way. It's a beautiful quilt though. We're in town for the summer now. Give a call when you feel up to lunch or something. We should just dump our kids with our moms to babysit together and they can gab while we go out and enjoy a nice peaceful lunch....are you in??
